WHO Global Cooperation on Assistive Technology Team (GATE) Recruiting Assistive Technology Experts

Dear friends and colleagues,

The World Health Organization’s Global Cooperation on Assistive Technology Team (GATE) is looking to recruit 5-6 assistive technology experts to support us with an exciting new digital project – to develop a machine reasoning system to support with the identification and selection of assistive products. This will include a range of assistive products to support functioning difficulties related to vision such as spectacles, magnifiers, white canes etc. This tool will be able to support service providers and end-users in identifying the best product for a person’s needs.

The time commitment will be approximately 22 days over the next two years. For full details about the project, the role and how to apply, please see the advert posted on the UNGM:

Please share amongst your networks and get in touch with us directly via assistivetechnology@who.int if you have any questions.

Thanks, the GATE team
